Take My hand

I always talk about the paths

That I wanna take

But never talk about the past

I’d rather talk of a nicer things 

Like museums art galleries

Than read a thousand diaries out loud

It’s hard to be a butter fly

When you act like a bee

 Stinging others will just bring you down

You’re no good without loving you 

You’re no good without loving me

So let’s take hands 

Take my hand

Take my hand
Take my hand
 

So I’ve got you if you've got me 

We live in the same colony 

I’ll be here when you need me around

Distance is a fickle thing

 In length or in the time machine

But there’s no length that I won’t go 

To lift you up or help you down


Take my hand
Take my hand
Take my hand

Peace

I wanna go where they can’t find me 

Make lots of noise and no one’s listening

Dance like a fool, no one’s laughin’

& get a little peace

& get a little peace

I want to go where there’s no boundaries

Dance with the elk, hear the trees sing

Lay on a rock, feel the earth breathe in

& get a little peace

& get a little peace

 

Climb the highest limb and breathe in the tree leaves 

Inhale and exhale and let go of everything 

Climb the highest limb and breathe in the tree leaves 

Inhale and exhale and let go of everything
 

I want the world to feel what I feel

Sit in a stream let the river cleanse them

Nap in the shade of the tallest evergreen 

& get a little peace 

& get a little peace

 

Climb the highest limb and breathe in the tree leaves 

Inhale and exhale and let go of everything 

Climb the highest limb and breathe in the tree leaves 

Inhale and exhale and let go of everything 

Other People

Henrick's

The girl with sunflower eyes

Compared to other people I’m a baby

Fresh face, doe-like eyes

Plenty of years ahead of me

Slow down child

You have three quarters of a century

Life doesn’t have a map

Just choose a path and walk it

Compared to other people I’m a lady

Should have slicked back hair

 Checking the stock markets daily

Hustle girl you don’t get breaks

Life isn’t a relay 

You’re grown up now

& you’ll see that time moves faster yearly

I know,  I know 

You say I’m young

You say I’m old

I know, I know

That I’m young and that I’m old 

You don’t, don’t know

I’m only in a race with myself

I’m not, I’m not

Other People

I’m not, I’m not other people

Compared to other people I’m a hippie

Should have student loans

  My third finger should bare a wedding ring

Oh come on child

You think you can survive on singing alone

Go get a man, take a class

Before you end up in poverty

I know, I know 

You say I’m young

You say I’m old

I know, I know

That I’m young and that I’m old 

You don’t, don’t know

I’m only in a race with myself

I’m not I’m not

Other People

I’m not I’m not other people

I know, I know

That I’m young and that I’m old

You don’t, don’t know

I’m only in a race with myself

I’m not, I’m not

Other people

No I’m not, I’m not

Other people

Gin on my lips

Your hands on my hips

It’s heatin' up, we go outside

We share a cig 

Then kiss a bit

You ask to take me home tonight

I said lets go

But there’s something you should know

I said lets go

But there’s something
You gotta gotta know

I don’t want another love affair 

I want you to arch me somewhere

Pull me close, not to your heart

One night, no death due us part

 

Back at your place 

You kiss south of my face

I’ll let you fill in the blank

Before the sunrise I’ll leave your side

Without a trace of me to find

 

You said don’t go

 There is something you should know

That I like you 

Please stay, stay for a few

I said
 

I don’t want another love affair 

I want you to arch me somewhere

Pull me close, not to your heart

One night, no death due us part


Uh ohhh uh ohhh uh oh uh oh uh ohhh 

Uh ohhh uh ohhh uh oh uh oh uh ohhh 
Uh ohhh uh ohhh uh oh uh oh uh ohhh 
 

I said
 

I don’t want another love affair 

I want you to arch me somewhere

Pull me close, not to your heart

One night, no death due us part

It’s harder to bloom

With the rain beating down

There’s no sunshine to bloom

Her buds out of the ground 

Yet she goes on to dance

Through the wind and the shade

Not knowing the flooding is causing her pain

An invisible man

With visible needs

Prays for rain

But neglects to water his seeds

She spins waves her leaves

Praying he’ll look below

But the only one watching’s

The tied up scarecrow 

Everybody knows

Behind her sunflower eyes

On her petals, that’s not dew,

She weeps and she cries

A flower can’t bloom in the dead of the night 

She’ll wither and wilt

In tainted delight

The weed choked garden

Suffocates her dance

The gardener doesn’t even

Take a second glance

Her sickly stem 

Fades and grows dim

She is praying for nurture and love from him

Everybody knows

Behind her sunflower eyes

On her petals, that’s not dew

She weeps and she cries

A flower can’t bloom in the dead of the night 

She’ll wither and wilt

In tainted delight

She stands tall reaching

Till she grabs his hand 

With a tug and a pull

She lifts out of the ground

In a vase is here he will place her

On display she makes for a beautiful

Table

50's

Wanderlust

Come on lay down with me

Let's cut out the chase

My house or yours

 Let's not break the bank

No need for coffee, dinner or dessert 

Let's skip the romance so we won't get hurt 

Ba da da da da da daaa ahh

There’ll be no story of

Our first kiss

All i can talk about’s

The way you touch my hips

There is no first base, second or third

Straight for the home run 

No poodle skirt

 

Ba da da da dada da da ah

I wanna love like they did in

The 50’s 

Oh my love, my darlin’

I’ve hungered for your touch

I wanna love like they did in

The 50’s

A long lonely time

Played twenty questions

Now you know my identity 

Now you know how I lost

Both my front teeth

You understand me

Based off of astrology 

But do you know what each smile means

Ba da da da dada da da ah

I wanna love like they did in

The 50’s 

Oh my love, my darlin

I’ve hungered for your touch

I wanna love like they did in

The 50’s

A long lonely time

It’s always short and never sweet

I’m rarely swept off my feet

A subtle sigh as we part 

Cause you can’t break through callused hearts (Not breaking through)

Callused hearts

(not breaking through)

I wanna love like they did in

The 50’s 

Oh my love, my darlin

I’ve hungered for your touch

I wanna love like they did in

The 50’s

A long lonely time

I guess you can say that I get irritable

With things that are familiar to me 

So I always hit the road running

To find a new place

 A new me

I close the last door before turning the knob

To the new life I made for myself

I guess I like leaving the past behind

No memories displayed on the shelf

So I'm hit the road running

'Cause I’ve got a case of wanderlust 

I gotta go go go 

I give myself to the open road

I gotta fly fly fly

Be free like the birds in the sky

 Wanderlust has me

& I have it right back

I admit that this is a problem

To not feel safe in the American dream

But as divorce rates get higher

It gets harder to convince it’s right for me

So I'm hit the road running

'Cause I’ve got a case of wanderlust 

I gotta go go go 

I give myself to the open road

I gotta fly fly fly

Be free like the birds in the sky

 Wanderlust has me

& I have it right back

 

The palm trees

The pine trees

The desert

The forest 

The ocean

The river

The summer

The winter

My roots wilt in every terrain 

Is this abnormal?

So before I go insane

I gotta go go go 

I give myself to the open road

I gotta fly fly fly

Be free like the birds in the sky

 Wanderlust has me

& I have it right back
